Twoway authentication

We have IS 4.6 server which act as client and our partner act as SSL server (partner server may be other then webMethods IS). Our partner wants to use two-way authentication

I have the following questions on two-way authentication,
–Checklist before configuring client IS server
–What configuration required at client IS server
–Which service should be used for communication
–How to associate client certificate to an invoking service.



  • Ensure you have a certificate for the server (you can use the Certificate Toolkit to help obtain one if necessary)
  • Install certificate as default outgoing SSL cert (see Administrator’s Guide for help)
  • You can use pub.client:http to send your request to the server. See the first Usage Note at the end of the service’s description in the Built-in Services Guide for help.
  • Same as above.


Thanks!!! Michael…
